From the past few years, Kangana Ranaut and controversies have walked hand-in-hand. Known for her bold statements and devil-may-care attitude, the actress has grabbed all the attention in the media. Her legal tussle with Hrithik Roshan has become the talk-of-the-town and has been so since some time now. In a television interview, Kangana targeted her ex-boyfriend, Aditya Pancholi, too, and had said, “Aditya Pancholi got an apartment for me but didn’t allow my friends to come there. It was a kind of a house arrest. Then I went to meet his wife. His daughter is a year older than me. My film, Gangster, was about to release then. I was a minor. I remember going to his wife (Zarina Wahab) and meeting her, and I was like, ‘Please save me! I’m younger than your daughter. I’m a minor and I can’t tell my parents.’ She said to me that they were relieved that he was not at home otherwise he raised his hand on the domestic help and others. She said, ‘It’s actually good for us if he is not around, so I can’t help you’.”
The interview didn’t go down well with Aditya and he has now sent a legal notice to Kangana for her disgraceful remarks against him. Aditya’s wife, Zarina, confirmed the news to a leading portal and said, “Yes, we have sent a legal notice to Kangana. Currently, we can’t really talk about it as our lawyers have said not to divulge more details. Give me a week’s time, I will surely talk to you in detail about the legal notice.” (Also read: Interesting!

In an interview with TOI, Aditya Pancholi had said, “I am not angry, but I am definitely hurt by Kangana’s act. The legal team sent Kangana and her sister Rangoli notices, but their response wasn’t up to the mark. We asked them to apologize unconditionally on the same national platforms where Kangana made those derogatory remarks against me. Eventually, her sister and she dragged even my son, daughter and wife into all this. That’s the reason Zarina and I decided to file a defamation case against her, which is both civil and criminal.”
Pancholi also confirmed that his case is not at all related to the ongoing controversy of Kangana with Hrithik. He added, “My case against Kangana has nothing to do with what is happening between Hrithik and her. Hrithik can deal with his own issues, but I’m clear that I will not keep quiet about whatever is bothering me. Cases are fought on merit and evidence. Remarks and statements will not come handy in the court of law, the proof will. The onus to prove her merit lies with her. Once the case is up for hearing, we’ll know.”
“I’m not doing anything undignified. Kangana has no right to talk about my family and me in such a manner. Why should I shut up? If I don’t fight for my family, who will? If someone makes remarks about my family, should I lock myself up in a room and sit tight? Someone has to put an end to her lies, and the only way to do it is through the law. I don’t want to stoop to her level.” concluded Pancholi.
Will Kangana retort on this in her signature style? That only time will tell!
